Country House Plans

Picture of Country House

Our country house plans have been used to construct homes in rural (and not so rural) areas all over the U.S. and Canada. While typically unpretentious and fairly straight forward in appearance from the outside, these homes need not be plain or unattractive. In fact, some of the best looking houses in our portfolio were constructed from country style home plans.

The term “country style” is not very specific, as it covers quite a few styles that are typically built in rural settings. Good examples would be farmhouse and French Country style homes.

Most of our country home plans include porches, including wrap around porches. The addition of lots of outdoor space makes the house feel larger, and connects the family with nature. The porches outside our country style homes tend to be deep as well as wide, so you can really enjoy the outdoors when the weather allows.

In the past, most rural families preferred to have an informal eating area included in the kitchen for casual everyday use. This is where the term “country kitchen” came from, and this is reflected in the country home floor plans of today. They typically include a formal dining room, and they often have mudrooms and pantries as well.

Common Characteristics of Country Style House Plans:

  • Typically built in rural areas
  • Straight-forward appearance, without a lot decoration or detailing
  • The kitchen is often the center of activity

Bedrooms

We highly recommend that you click on two boxes – the number of bedrooms you know you need, and one less bedroom. For example, if you need 4 bedrooms, click on the boxes next to 4 and next to 3. Otherwise you will not see homes where existing rooms on the lower, main, or upper levels might work perfectly well as a bedroom instead of as an office, study, etc.
